Staff Association


SMUSA (SMU Staff Association) promotes the full participation of all staff in the University’s educational mission in a variety of ways including development of workplace skills, outreach and campus participation, serving as liaison to the University administration and fostering a sense of community among those associated with the University. Staff are automatically members of the Staff Association – we encourage you to join the fun and get involved!

“Giddy-Up” Safety Escorts


The Police Department provides a courtesy van service to anyone while on the SMU campus. To obtain a ride, call 8-3388. “Giddy-Up” cart rides are generally provided by student employees of the Police Department who are restricted to delivering you to on-campus locations only. If student employees are not on duty, SMU Police Officers will respond to your request if they are not working higher priority police related matters. Giddy Up carts may also be summoned by picking up a call box phone identified by a bright blue light on top of them and which are located throughout the campus. These phones may also be used to reach the SMU police in case of an emergency.
